L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Golden Balm Review

Hi friends ….

Today I am going to review a drugstore brand product…. L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Golden Balm.

I have mostly picked up hair products from L’Oreal. However this cream was one of the very few products which also specifically mention about using it on décolletage along with the face. So I wanted to try it out and see how it fares.

Packaging:

The cream comes in a dark coffee brown tinted glass jar with golden colored cap. The color combination gives it a very high end brand look even though it is more of a drugstore brand. As soon as I open the cap, the fragrance of the cream spreads around. It has a mild citrusy and floral fragrance. The cream itself has a lovely golden orange hue. To say that it is creamy in texture is an understatement as it is really very thick 🙂

Price:

It is priced at $19.99 for 1.7 oz (48 g)

My Experience with L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Golden Balm:

I had shared with you how difficult it was for me to use Lush British Nanny because of its heavy texture. The L’Oreal Golden Balm also makes me face the same difficulty. I very soon found out that due to the cream thickness it is not a very easy task to blend it into the skin.

So the trick to use this cream is to apply it as tiny dots over the face and neck and then blend it. However still you can see in the swatch that it does not get completely absorbed in the skin. So the next step that I do is to mix a little rose water in the cream and blend it on my face. This makes the cream less viscous and more easy to spread. However the entire cream never gets completely absorbed in my face.

I wanted to see how the cream fares on the décolletage area. Even with my extremely dry skin it is nearly impossible for me to use this cream during summers. However in winters I have been using this cream more efficiently. Due to its extreme thickness I do not prefer using it on my face. But it feels very soothing on my neckline area. I read that the skin on our neck is extremely thin so I feel happy it provides good nourishment.

The other concern that I have with this cream is the orange color it possesses. It does not impart any orange color to skin but I am not very convinced to apply a face cream with additional colorants in it. I am currently trying to finish off this cream by using it in my night time routine. Since it is very cold, also it is more suitable for use in this current weather. It is described to contain 10 different essential oils but I guess it has made the cream very heavy. I think this cream would be more suitable for very mature skin type.

Pros of L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Golden Balm:

  • Recommended only if you live in very cold place and have dry skin.
  • Fragrance is mildly citrusy and good.
  • Good for neck and décolletage.
  • Reasonably priced.
  • It contains multiple precious oils for skin nourishment.

Cons of L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Golden Balm:

  • Not suitable for oily or normal skin tones.
  • No sunscreen benefits.
  • Has colorants added to the cream.
  • Cream does not get completely absorbed in skin.
  • Greasy to use on facial skin.
  • Cream is very thick and heavy.
  • Did not observe any change in skin tone or texture.
  • Even after blending tends to transfer on clothes and collars.

IMBB Rating:

2 out of 5. The only good thing is that it can provide hydration only in winters and that too when I have blended it sufficiently enough.

Would I repurchase L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Golden Balm?

No I would not buy this product again. I would not recommend it either as it was not up to mark 🙁
